About this holiday
Originally conceived by renowned Antiguan Yachtsman Sir Hugh Bailey in 1968, this small hotel is now lovingly cared for by his daughter Feona and her son Colin; offering a warm welcoming atmosphere with emphasis on friendly and hospitable service. The property is ideally located on the quiet waters of Falmouth Harbour, on the south of the island, near historic Nelson’s Dockyard. If you prefer a large All Inclusive resort, The Catamaran Hotel is not for you. However, if the sound of a small colonial style beachfront hotel is your idea of paradise, then this little gem is the perfect choice to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life. For 10 nights this family run hotel is exclusive to ClubSolos guests and offers the same personalised service that can be found at all of our other ClubSolos properties. Feona, Colin and other dedicated staff will be on hand at all times to ensure that we are all having a memorable time.
There are five room categories at the hotel all offering the same facilities but all are different sizes, décor and offer different views from the room and this is reflected in our varying room prices. The Standard Rooms are the smallest rooms in the hotel and offer all the basic amenities needed for a comfortable stay. As these rooms do not have a terrace or balcony, a small table and chairs will be set out in the courtyard so that we can enjoy the glorious views of the ocean. The Beachfront Rooms are on the ground floor and have a shared terrace. These rooms are just a few steps from the hotel’s small beach. The Superior View Suites are on the first floor of the hotel and offer breath taking panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and the beach from the private balcony. The Captain’s Cabin are individual units set apart from the main building. These rooms offer the same stunning panoramic views of Falmouth Bay, overlooking the swimming pool and offers private access to the beach. The Admiral’s Suite is the most spacious room of the hotel. Located on the first floor of the hotel, it boasts views of Falmouth Bay and the beach from the private balcony.
Away from the rooms, the hotel boasts a private swimming pool offering stunning views of the ocean. Here we can grab a sun lounger, a drink from the hotel bar and relax and unwind for the rest of the day. A mere few steps from the pool is the small beach. None of the beaches in Antigua are private however, it is rare for anyone other than hotel guests to use the beach. Lined with sun loungers and umbrellas we can relax with a good book. Although there are no organised beach activities here, yachting, diving and hiring of sunfish dinghies and rowing boats are all available through the hotel reception.
In the evenings we will all dine together at the hotel’s Captain Quarter’s Restaurant & Bar offering waterfront alfresco dining. With unrivalled view of Catamaran Marina and Falmouth Bay, the setting is perfect for breakfast each morning and our ten included themed night dinners. We will enjoy everything from a traditional Antiguan coal pot cooking night to Jerk Night - all served up with a different form of entertainment each evening.
Away from our hotel, this stunning island has so much more to offer. If you are looking for a livelier beach, Pigeon Point Beach is a short drive away from our hotel. Part of the Antigua experience is the sunset-into-the-night party at Shirley Heights which is just 10 minutes’ drive from our hotel. It is an 18th-century fort that commands fabulous views, and on Sundays, a massive barbeque attracts the yacht-set and locals alike where we can join the fun. A visit to a Caribbean Island would be incomplete without a catamaran cruise. The circumnavigation tour takes travellers on a 60 mile adventure around Antigua’s amazing coastline with a chance to snorkel and swim in the open waters. Why not try your hand at some traditional Caribbean cooking with classes at Nicole’s Table? Once dishes are cooked they are served on the veranda overlooking St John’s Harbour.
